Welcome to our newest patron: Nayla Natural Care

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Oh! Things!|Ottawa|technical stuff

Ottawa-based Nayla Natural Care offers organic, natural and eco-friendly essentials. Take a moment to poke around the store’s website. There are tons of great products for the parenting set. (Personally, I have my eye on these stainless steel lunch containers. And Mark was just looking at this and pronounced it to be The Best Invention Ever. We had one and loved it. And I just realized they carry reusable produce bags too! )

Anyway, there are lots of great finds to be found. And I happen to know that Gwen Leron, the owner, is keen and conscientious and a mom herself. She tests all the products herself and enlists family and friends to do the same… so you know that the item you’re buying is a good one.

Welcome Nayla Natural Care! And thank you for your support!

Aaaaand, Nayla makes five. I promised I wouldn’t go beyond five ads for five patrons. So that means that The Fishbowl is full. If you’re interested in taking out a space please contact me and I will put you on a waiting list. ;)

I want to take a moment to thank all the Fishbowl patrons for their sponsorship. Their support makes it much easier for me to exist in this little corner of cyberspace.

Readers, please consider showing your appreciation by clicking through to their websites!

Thank you!

I’ve been eyeing those containers for a while. I wonder though if little hands can open it.

Congrats on the ads.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (15) and Sarah (13). I am the editor of the Kitchissippi Times, Capital Parent Newspaper, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!

Every day I eat lunch and take a picture. Here's a recent one:

  • My latest post at the MediaSmarts website is about passwords. Is this something you've talked about with your kids? Given the proliferation of devices in households (often one per person now) it might be an important topic for discussion. How have you handled passwords in your household?
